Hey, Came over from Ranger-Forums. I'm a Heavy Duty Diesel Mechanic in Washington State. Picked up my 2000 xlt 2wd in January last year and couldn't be happier. I put on Fabtech spindles in front, a 2 inch block with belltech 6400 shackles in the rear and 265/75 R16 Goodyear Duratrac's.

Dont got any pics up yet, but hopefully it stops raining up here so I can grab some.

Hola from another Washingtonian, and from frozen Montana. I'm finishing my bachelor's in diesel technology out here. Where do you work at in WA? And we'd love to have you at the meet if you have the time.

I'm pretty sure I'll be at the meet. I work/worked at Pacific Auto Transport in Auburn. I had a bad accident at work and have spent the last 4 months on L&I. Not sure if I'm going back to work there or not yet...

Getting your BA from Montana Tech right or something? How's the program? I went to Bates Tech here in town but its only an AA. Where your at its the only BA Diesel course around here right?

Montana State University Northern. Do you know a Dale Mallow? He went to Bates and transfered out here. It's the closest Bachelor's degree that I know of. There is a program at Idaho State but I don't believe that they have a bachelor's program.

I know Pacific Auto transport. They hiring? In May I'm out of a job!!! Lol I'm sorry to hear about the accident. It's a part of our world, as much as we try and prevent it, we can't always prevent it. I work with locomotives at the railroad. We always have ppe and new safety this and that blah blah you know.

Yeah, they are hiring for my job but you dont want to work there. It was an "I should be dead accident." I had a 36,000 lbs. car hauling trailer fall on me. Two broken ribs and a wrist. Bad news man. We didn't even have wheel chocks there...


anyways... on to pics...





A little flex just for the kids....
